Hotel del Rio was a great place to stay. They were very reasonably priced and offered great rooms. Management was very friendly and helpful. We felt that they went out of their way to provide simple things for us to make our experience enjoyable. The rooms were very nice and clean and the location was great. Only one complaint, we...

I stayed 5 nights at this hotel for my entire stay on Ambergris Caye. I initially booked the bungalow that was closest to the road but asked to be moved to a room with air-conditioning. I found the bungalow far too hot, noisy and we did encounter some cockroaches. Luckily, we were able to be moved to a room the...

I gotta say the place is located in one of the best spots on the the island. AMAZING view!! As soon as you step out of the hotel you are looking at the beach front! We had a room on the second floor with double doors! We opened them up and felt such a nice breeze come in the room!...

We booked this hotel for 3 nights and found the quality of the hotel to be the best bang for you're buck on the island. The rooms were clean, AC efficient and frequent housecleanings. While it is located north of the main town, and requires a 10 minute walk to downtown, its very worth it. It allows for peaceful quiet...

I love this little hotel. The little cabanas just far enough off the beaten path and on the water. While the hotel doesn't have air conditioning, the breeze from the water and listening to the birds in the morning was wonderful. Would definitely stay there again!

Stayed here the first week of March 2014. I must admit that I am spoiled on high end hotels, but in this case, it was well worth not having A/C as there is always a breeze blowing through. We stayed in an upstairs, Rm #8. It's sparse, but I get great vibes from this place. We originally scheduled 2 days,...

If great value and a cool local vibe is what you are looking for, I think the Hotel del Rio is great! We stayed in a palapa upstairs with a balcony view of the palms and sea. There was always a nice breeze in our room and slept with the balcony doors open. We had a small kitchen, but didn't...

We picked Hotel del Rio based on tripadvisor reviews. Upon arrival, we loved the authentic belizian feel of the outside, and it was a nice location - gorgeous views. The staff was excellent and helpful. At first, I was a little put off by the simplicity of the room. Very thin bedding, very simple decor. I soon realized this was...

This was probably my third or fourth time to Ambergris Caye and I still love it. I love how close HDR is to everything. It's just a walk away. The fact that you can walk on the beach to get everywhere is super nice. I really loved the bakery across the street. We went there every morning! The Cabana Casita...
